Film Screening | The Walt Disney Family Museum Fifth Anniversary Film (2014)

Sun, Aug 28 | 2pm | Theater
FREE for members, Reservation Required




In The Walt Disney Family Museum Fifth Anniversary Film, Emmy Award®-winning filmmaker David Stoelk takes audiences on a fascinating journey through the creation of the institution that, for a decade, has honored the man behind the magic.

Exclusive interviews with Walt Disney’s family, archival footage of interviews with the architects, contractors, and exhibition planners, and rediscovered footage of Diane all help to narrate the film and shine a light on those who, alongside Diane, championed the museum’s mission.

Through his documentation of the museum’s inception, Stoelk uncovers another story: that of a daughter’s devotion to her father. Though the museum tells the story of Walt’s life, work, and legacy, the creation of the institution is a triumph of Diane's dedication, vision, and heart.
